The Scariest Thing of All

By: Debi Gliori

Pip is a very small little rabbit. In fact he is the smallest rabbit in his whole family. The only thing about Pip that isn’t small is his list of things he is scared of. After one particularly exhausting day of adding things to his list, he falls asleep and when he wakes he hears the scariest sound of all and this causes him to run off into the dark woods. There Pip makes a discovery that changes everything.

This is a wonderful story of being scared and then not. It is about discovery, courage and seeing things as they are. Gliori has given us in this tale a story that is a little silly and easy to understand, with an outcome that can only be considered reassuring. Pip is a very little rabbit with a very big imagination and his story is accompanied by Gliori’s wonderfully detailed and layered illustrations that somehow seem more obvious as Pip’s perspective changes.

A great little story, recommended
